Admin Release Countdown: Get Ready for Summer ’19

By

It’s time to mark your calendars for the next Salesforce Release, Summer ’19! Here are the most important dates you’ll want to mark in your calendar.

April 18: Get early access to the release by signing up for a Pre-Release org

Admins can sign up for a Developer Edition environment chock full of all the Spring ’19 features to explore to your heart’s content. Developer environments are stand-alone environments where you can learn, build, and get comfortable with features and functionality.

April 22: Review the Release Notes

Release notes will be posted here. Search the products you use for release updates. Make sure to check out the “You Asked For It” section which lists all of the IdeaExchange ideas included in the release. First time reading the release notes? Here are some great tips.

Get help from the community! Each release there are a number of blogs by community members that break down the release. If you have written a post about the release, or know of another community post that would be helpful to other #AwesomeAdmins, please comment below!

May 3: Be sure to refresh your Sandbox

May 4 is the refresh deadline to get early access to all the Summer ’19 features in one of your Sandboxes. Once you have explored with the Free Developer environment and reviewed the release notes for features that are important to you – it’s time to try out features related to your customizations in your sandbox. This is a great time to evaluate how specific features may be useful or impactful for the way your organization uses Salesforce. Check out this article for instructions on exactly how and when to refresh your sandbox!

June 7: Join us live for the Awesome Admin Release Preview

Join Admin Evangelists and an expert panel for a 1hr deep dive into the release and what features Admins can’t miss. This preview is a great opportunity to hear an overview from Admin experts and may help you determine which features in the Release Readiness Live broadcast to focus on. There are a lot of features delivered with each release, so we go through all of it and provide a summary of the features most impactful to Admins.

June 3-7: Watch Release Readiness LIVE

Hear from Product Managers across the company and across the clouds as they share the latest features and demos of their products. This is a multi-day, live video streaming event that is available on-demand after the event.

May 17, June 7 & 14: Summer ’19 Arrives!

Check the Maintenance Calendar for exactly when your Salesforce will get the Summer ’19 features. Scroll through the list and check your Salesforce instance (NA__, EMEA__) against the release dates listed in the calendar. Once the release window has passed for your environment, you will have access to the newest features in your production environment!
